Emory Corporate Governance and Accountability Review


This Article explains the concept of prisoner reentry, which are Reentry programs that are designed to assist incarcerated individuals to successfully transition back into society after being released from prison. One critical component for reforming our system is through enhanced reentry programming and support: ensuring that offenders are provided adequate support and guidance post-incarceration, so that they may re-enter society as a contributing member of the global community. For the next administration, criminal justice reform will present an opportunity to implement rehabilitative justice through an investment of resources. The benefits of doing so appear clear'the community is safer when people are successfully reintegrated and precious resources are saved by not having to incarcerate those who don't successfully reintegrate.
